york city, and terry moran in tom's river, new jersey, this is a special edition of "nightline," the perfect storm. october 31st, 2012. >> good evening, i'm terry moran and i'm in tom's river, new jersey, one of the hard-hit communities on the water in this state. the water that superstorm andy hurled against the atlantic seaboard from maryland, all the way up to new york city and beyond. so many communities utterly devastated. you can see this kind of scene, as you see behind me, mile after mile on this coast. and two days after landfall now, the problems are piling up. the death toll now at 74. there's reports of an oil spill and now, a dangerous new threat in many communities, the ruptured gas lines in town after town. you can hear the hissing, you can smell the dangerous gas in the air. and the threat of explosions and fires is growing by the minute.
